Square Enix's Perplexing The Quiet Man Gets November Release Date


The Quiet Man, the mysterious, weird, game Square Enix announced at E3 2018 this year has a release date. The FMV, action-game hybrid is coming to PS4 and Steam on November 1. There's even going to be a limited edition for players really interested in the enigmatic title.

The Quiet Man will retail for $14.99 and players who purchase the game between November 1 and November 15 will receive a free PS4 dynamic theme and eight PlayStation avatars. For players who purchase The Quiet Man during the same period but on Steam, they'll get a set of seven desktop and mobile wallpapers. There's also a 10 percent discount on the game during this time.

The Quiet Man has stayed relatively, well quiet. Developed by Square Enix and original Prey developers Human Head, The Quiet Man apparently mixes live-action FMV sequences with action-combat. Waypoint had a preview of the game, and I feel like we haven't learned much since then.

Who knows? Maybe this little oddity will turn out to be something of a cult classic?
